moreno ratti turns marble into soft curvy vases in latest collection

italian designer moreno ratti used the most famous material from his hometown, carrara, to create his first limited edition vase collection. named ‘fat vases’, the designer wondered what it was like to treat a material as hard and rough as marble, as if it had a soft and plushy nature. the collection includes nine white carrara and blue calacatta marble vases, tightened with a steel band, to give the illusion of the marble being squeezed.

handmade in carrara by moreno ratti, the colleciton aims to deliver ‘humor in a cold world‘. the designer treats the marble as if it was soft skin, wrapping it in a band and even creasing the marble to create the realistic effect. the result is a series of curvy pieces, alluding to the sensual shape of bodies, in different sizes and colors.
